French Ratatouille

A classic recipe to combine all the fresh-summer vegetables into one delicious dish!

Ingredients for 4 persons

  • 1 eggplant (400 g)
  • 1 zucchini (400 g)
  • 1 tomato (150g)
  • 1 green bell pepper (150g)
  • 50 g of white/ yellow onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 100 ml of vegetable broth (1/2 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon of tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Step 1:

Peel the garlic and the onion, then chop finely. Set aside.

Step 2:

Cut the eggplant, zucchini, tomato and bell pepper into small pieces.

Set aside, being careful not to mix the eggplants with the other vegetables.

Step 3:

In a large skillet, heat the oil over high heat (7/10) and fry the onion and garlic for 2 minutes.

Step 4:

Add the eggplant and continue cooking for 5 minutes, stirring regularly.

Step 5:

Add the vegetable broth, paprika, oregano and ginger.

Lower the heat a little (5/10) and simmer for 5 minutes.

Step 6:

Add the other vegetables (zucchini, tomato, bell pepper), the tomato paste and the balsamic vinegar. Mix.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Cook uncovered over medium heat (5/10) for 15-20 minutes, stirring regularly. The cooking time has to be adapted; you get more or less tender vegetables… it’s up to you to choose how you prefer to eat them!
